Roasted Beet Salad With Horseradish Cream Dressing

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by ~Leslie~

This combination of sweet beets and hot horseradish is a mild, delicious taste treat and a great side dish with grilled meats. A twist on the presentation of the Eastern Europen dish called Tsvikly. From Food and Drink magazine. Hope you enjoy! *Note, please use a very hot, prepared horseradish sauce to offset the mildness of the cream. If you do not have hot horseradish, then please be prepared for a very mild flavoured dressing!

The dressing on these beets was oh-so-good (be sure to include the horseradish)! I made my life very easy and used some vacuum-packed pre-cooked beets that I had in my pantry. Also, did not use the lettuce - just beets, onions and dressing for us. Thanks.
